We had the good fortune of connecting with Jasmine Flowers and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jasmine, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Serving on Active Duty, I have always been familiar with fitness, but I wanted to pursue creating my fitness business outside of a “boot camp” mentality. Xtreme Hip Hop is a low impact cardio program that incorporates step aerobics to hip-hop music from yesterday and today. It’s for anybody and everybody who likes to workout to music in an environment that encourages and motivates you to “Don’t Stop. Don’t Quit. Don’t Give Up.”

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a 14 year Active Duty Army Solider stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado. About 2 years ago, I had to have back surgery, which offered me the opportunity to find this fitness program that was low-impact to allow me to continue to serve. At first, it was challenging to learn how to navigate the step board and make sure that I did not further enhance my injury. But with continued practice, I was able to grow as an instructor and a student of the brand. I was able to bring Xtreme Hip Hop to the local community during COVID-19 while ensuring students were socially distant outside and try Xtreme Hip Hop. The exposure of promoting the brand outside allowed me to be featured in The Gazette local newspaper and eventually find my fitness home at Vasa here in Colorado Springs.
